Purple Tuesday

Here at Access For All, we encourage businesses and organisations to look for ways to improve the customer experience for disabled people all year round. 

Purple Tuesday is the 3rd November where those achievements and success stories are being celebrated.

One of the key messages this year is to make do and mend. This means that we are learning from other programmes and strategies, big and small, that have made positive steps to improving the experiences that we provide for our disabled customers. 

Here in the UK, disabled people account for 20% of the population, making them the world’s largest minority group. It’s estimated that the spending power of disabled people and their families is worth £249 billion. This figure is also growing around 14% per year. 

One of the aims of Purple Tuesday is to highlight some of the commercial and social benefits to businesses by making spaces more disability-inclusive. This goes beyond the physical space, to include websites and staff training to help your customers and clients who may or may not show that they have additional needs. 

This year over 3,500 organisations are expected to take part making over 5,000 commitments to improving the lives of people living with a disability.
